Feliz Día de la Pachamama!

Today is a day to remember that we are from the Earth and she is our home. We have no other (as of yet!) so we must respect what she provides us and give thanks for all the wonderful things we have because of her. Too often we are taken away from nature and stuck in a world of material things and cement buildings. I hope that everyone gets the chance to get outside today and say thanks whether it be by taking a run (which is what I did), reading in the park, or offering a pago a la tierra like the natives of the Andes do.

Oh, how I would love to be in the mountains and celebrate dia de la Pachamama every day but the ocean is a great natural beauty I can enjoy here in Lima!

This is from the summer but it captures mountains and and the ocean.

  1. what a contrast - severe aridity right next to infinite moisture! Great picture, Pumpkin.
